Wendi’s Word: Vacation station

It’s in the books – we have embarked on the first family vacation as we headed west to California, the first week of April. I have never gone anywhere on spring break, not even during high school or college years. I spent the time getting extra hours in at work to earn money. Times have […]

Wendi’s Word: Team deserves win

A huge congratulations to Dan Fife, his coaching staff and the Clarkston Boys Varsity Basketball for winning another state championship and making it back-to-back. I will admit I didn’t feel well Saturday morning, really it felt like my stomach churning. I boil it down to I was nervous for the boys because it only increased […]

Wendi’s Word: Staying strong without coffee

I have finished seven weeks going coffee free. I will admit some days have been easier than others. I did want a cup of the delicious liquid last week before going into a game. I was tired and needed the boost. Alas, it was after 5 p.m. and since I had been without for so […]

Wendi’s Word: Stay to the right

With my 2-year-old vocalizing to get out of the meat department in the grocery store, I turned the cart to the right. I understood. He needed to move and see something different. I could have gone to the left, going into the produce but here I was in the bakery section teasing my son and […]

Wendi’s Word: Perils of parenting

Thud. Five seconds of silence. Slam. Another five seconds of silence. Then, rattling of metal against metal as our 2-year-old son shakes the baby gate and speaks his native toddler tongue. It was time, wasn’t it for the escape from the crib to officially begin. He had escaped many months ago, but I don’t think […]

Wendi’s Word: Fresh start

Ah, here we are again. The beginning of the year – a time to start fresh and make goals for the new year. Maybe I should begin with goals I probably will never make or if I made them they would easier be broken like going to a bookstore. Or buying a book once all […]

Wendi’s Word: Many sides to story

Being a mom, I pay more attention to the mom jokes like hiding in the bathroom away from children so a favorite candy bar can’t be sniffed out before said mom gets a chance to devour it. I used to laugh at the videos parents posted of tiny hands reaching under the door. I don’t […]

Wendi’s Word: Just do it

I waited until most of Clarkston’s gridiron heroes had left the field before I made my way up the tunnel at Ford Field last Saturday. As I walked up the ramp to go to the press conference, I ended up surrounded by the players as they high fived each other and hugged each other on […]

Wendi’s Word: Time to write

Here we are with two months left of 2017 and I was in a group setting when someone asked quite a few questions. One, did you fulfill the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year? Two, what goals do you have for the rest of 2017? Three, what goals do you […]

Wendi’s Word: Decade at CNews

It’s Monday and the office is humming with activity as it is deadline and we are getting this week’s edition ready for you. It’s a special Monday as exactly 10 years ago, I arrived at the office for my first day with Sherman Publications. Now thinking about it, I really should have bought cake for […]
